Bio & Resume

Gracie strives to tell stories that conjure thoughtful questions of its audience. In a world with so much opportunity to avoid the truth, she finds solace in theatre that makes its audience uncomfortable in an effort to push them towards change. Gracie believes growth is powerful; she likes to take on new challenges, to learn from them, and to celebrate her failure.
